Go off-road and explore the vibrant environment of Albay with this half-day eco-tour trip to the beautiful town of Jovellar. Taking you to the town’s cave, river, and falls, this jam-packed activity appeals to anyone craving from some adventure and exciting day out in the open.
If you’re going solo, you can pick the motorcycle back ride as your local ride for this trip. Those who are going in groups can opt to ride in either a jeepney or a tricycle. After you are picked up within the town of Donsol, you will head to the Jovellar Underground River. You will then be transferred to a bamboo raft here. From the jump-off point, you will be led through the cavern to witness the stunning rock formation and stalactites that shimmer in the darkness.
The cavern is around 150 meters long. In some parts of the cave, you can find bats in their natural habitat. You can also indulge in the beauty of the rock columns and formations housed in the area while on the way. At the far end of the subterranean waterway, you will discover a two-tier underground falls.
Feel free to dip in the cold water and just lounge by the shore, observing the nice view. If you’re the adventure-seeking type of traveler, you can go cliff jumping on the gorge and land in the deep blue-green waters. If you plan to pack up early or if you’re lucky to have extra time, you can visit Mayanpayan Hills. The climb is a bit steep, but the panoramic view and fresh air you get to experience at the top is worth every step. Afterward, you will be taken back to the jump-off point and ride your way back to Donsol.
Pack your swimming essentials and underwater camera for an exciting cave, river, falls, and a side trip to Jovellar in the province of Albay. Check availability by choosing a date.
